easy diy: sleeveless summer shirts


 
Getting into the spirit of spring/summer dressing by hacking the sleeves off a few shirts. I started chopping the sleeves off a few weeks ago, on the spur of the moment, but only just finished tidying them all up last weekend. I wish I had ironed the pink shirt before taking these photos. Oops.

    Love them! We've got too-high heat and haze here in Brisbane, I think it was about 31 degrees today and all I can think about wearing are sleeveless shirts! You've inspired me πŸ™‚
    I've also added you to my 'daily reads' on my blog, I hope you don't mind!

    Ohh, I think since the temperatures going up, I should shorten my sleeves too. Maybe I'll try this one day when I'm not tired.

    It's funny how people spend hundreds to buy a sleeveless shirt when they can just diy their own- thanks for sharing! xx misstea & co.
